Event Type

The waters in our country have been muddied with hate, fear, and division. What are we going to do about it? Join Cynthia, along with Beckie Menzie and Irwin Berkowitz, as she traces where we’ve been and how we got here, finding truth, compassion, and humor along the way.

“Bridge Over Muddied Waters was awarded the Chicago Cabaret Performers Advocacy Award, and it is easy to see why. The musical cabaret details, through careful song selection and Ms. Clarey’s own written words, her reflections on political and societal unrest in this country. With this piece of cabaret theater, the singing actress comments on the Black experience, on politics, presidents, and Washington D.C., on activism and activists, on legends and leaders, and on her own personal encounters with prejudice, micro-aggressions, and just plain old garden variety ignorance…These personal stories make Bridge Over Muddied Waters more than good theater – they make it important theater.”
